“Still an excellent hotel.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

This is our 3rd visit to the Onabrava. We stayed from the 29th September to the 6th October. Full Board. Having read some of the negative reviews prior to our visit, we were a bit apprehensive that it might have gone downhill a bit. Nothing could have been further from the truth. This is still an excellent hotel. We went with Siesta, and had a FREE carafe of wine ( half litre ) and bottled water with lunch and evening meal every day. The food is a bit repetative, but it caters for everyone. I can not really fault this hotel, and would say, dont believe everything you read.

Room Tip: Try to get a room above the bar to get the sun most of the day.

Overall we have enjoyed our stay , the hotel is very nice and clean , staff are very friendly.
Food is buffet style and there is a good choice and plenty to go round and the choice changes daily and the service is also very good.Champagne and wide variety of drinks free with breakfast in the morning but have to pay for "all" drinks including water with your evening meal.
Room very spacious and clean with a decent shower and toiletries on arrival. Negatives for the room are soft mattress "a bit of roll together", pillows certainly not luxurious , no Iron in room and no tea coffee making facilities.
Wi-fi is available at an additional cost.
Swimming pool and spa are very nice but you need to pay deposit for locker and pay for hire of towels
Train station is only 5 minutes walk away through the back of the hotel and is only 9 euros for a return to Barcelona (1 hour+ journey)

Had a nice relaxing holiday. This is a nice hotel with a lovely spa. Very clean and most staff were very friendly & helpfull. The rooms were spacious and clean cut with a balcony. It would have been good if they provided an iron. They served different food/dessert every night but lacked in taste but they cannot cater for everyone's taste buds. They provide a towel everyday. Everything is local. 1hour train ride to Barcelona Central & only €9.10.

Had a great weeks holiday here. The food was good but lacked sparkle some nights. You can not fault the staff and their exceptional cleaning. The hotel is clean and very welcoming.

The plus points - food, clean, location, staff, rooms, plenty of sun beds, the little super market that you can have a bargain drink, no chavs and the lobby

Slightly negative - the pool was very cold.
well worth a visit - one of the best

This was the fourth time to the Onabrave hotel and it certainly has maintained the quality throughout. Although the food was good most of the time, it possibly has slipped from the high standards of previous stays.
We found the hotel to be extremely clean, the staff very friendly, and well located for those nightly walks along the prom!
If its music you want, there is lots of it along the promenade with dancing outside each hotel.
Very romantic atmosphere if you like that sort of thing!
Certainly would recommend the hotel and the location.

My husband and I have just returned from a week at the Onabrava, and feel compelled to write a review, which isn't like me at all! This hotel is as near to a 5 star as makes no odds. It is very well run, spotless, and the staff are all courteous. It is well equipped with an entertainment theatre, a lovely bar and the reception area is spacious, with a guest pianist to listen to and relax 2 or 3 times a week. The dining room and food was exceptional, I counted no fewer than 20 dishes every day just for the salad selection, plus 10 of sauces pickles etc. Heaps of hot dishes, also vegetarian and fish every day, and the cakes and selections of fresh fruits were second to none.
Santa Susanna is a favorite of ours, so friendly and couple orientated, coupled with the best hotel experience I have had even rivaling 5 star Egyptian hotels, is a compelling reason for us to book again for next year! Can't wait!

Room Tip: 5th floor, if you like a quiet room

We made a late booking at this very nice hotel and had a wonderful holiday. All parts of the hotel are spotlessly clean and well laid out. The staff were extremely friendly and heful - even searching through thick ivy to find a domino we dropped from our balcony..
